Waitsburg traces its roots back to 1865, when pioneer settler Sylvester Wait opened a flour mill on Coppei Creek. In the midst of a city and organizational push to restore the old mill, fire struck the five-story mill on September 5, 2009. Built by Jeff Broom, Don Thomas and the City of Waitsburg, the historic Wait’s Mill Kiosk is located at the end of South Main Street in Wait’s Park.
